Feast on locally grown foods and wine while giving back to the community at the annual Green Feast at the Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano on September 7, 2013.
The event will be catered by top chefs, organic farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and vintners who will serve hors d’oeuvres using farm-grown, artisanal foods and a family-style four-course al fresco dinner– all sourced within 250 miles.
The event starts with an Eco-App Off, in which Orange County's superstar chefs come together in friendly competition to create hors d'oeuvres for the guests. These chefs include, Aaron Anderson (Harlow’s Fine Cuisine & Craft Cocktails, San Juan Capistrano) Noah Blom (Arc Restaurant, Costa Mesa) Scott Brandon (Linx, Orange) Paul Buchanan (Primal Alchemy, Long Beach) Greg Daniels (Haven Collective, Orange/Costa Mesa/Pasadena) Gina Galvan & Robert Zuetell (Chomp Chomp Nation, Fullerton) Ryan O’Melveny Wilson (Five Crowns/SideDoor, Corona Del Mar) David Pratt (Brick Pizzeria, San Clemente) Debra Sims (Maro Wood Grill, Laguna Beach.) Food is served under twinkling lights on a 200-foot long communal table.
